"Lovin' is really my game" - which was one of the first 12" singles I ever purchased (from Max Millward's in Wednesfield). Great to see it re-released!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 21 May 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I never got this album back in the day, the band were unknown to me. Now with Tabu reissuing all of the companies albums this was finally on my radar due to a high profile advertising campaign. I bought it along with the other 3 albums from Tabu ( I knew the other artists very well) that were released at the same time.

I must say that these are great tracks and only after a couple of listens become memorable. I don't know why it took me so long to notice this album but I'm glad TABU brought it back and I can now appreciate this bands output.

5.0 out of 5 stars At Last 24 Mar 2014
By Ant
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
At last, Tabu release this funk masterpiece on CD.
From driving funk instrumental Hangin On, soul ballads Waiting for Someone and This Must be Heaven to the great dance tracks Wake up and Be Somebody and Loving is really my game this is pure class from 1977.

2.0 out of 5 stars The mastering job isn't that great! 4 May 2013
By Michael G. Smith II - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I was happy to find out that this album was finally being released on CD for the first time ever. When I first listened to it I first noticed the treble was way too hight way too high. On track #3 This Must Be Heaven, one of my favorite tracks, the sound is kinda thin and the drums aren't strong sounding at all even some of them missed my ears. My ears don't ever lie to me about sound quality and a master tape. This isn't it! I tend to think this CD was mastered from a vinyl source or poor second/third generation tapes. Way too much noise reduction used! I'm returning the CD back for store credit to get something else. It just doesn't sound right!

5.0 out of 5 stars Brainstorm - Stormin' CD 11 Dec 2013
By Joel J. Reisteter - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I recently bought this CD reissue, for those who know the orginal album from 1977, it is great. I am surprised that the Tabu label has been reactivated, & I'm glad it is, but right now as of this date, it's still only available as an import to the USA from England. I am surprised with the packaging, it's very good but the removing the disc fron it's sleeve is a bit tricky, it's tight. No more broken plastic hubs espcially with digi-pack or orginal jewel case. The mastering of this disc seems a bit bass shy, but it's still acceptable to me, but could be a bit more bass pronounced. The liner notes are great and shed light on Brainstorm, a funk band who I really didn't know too much about. I cannot remember if the lyrics were included with the original Tabu/RCA vinyl release, they are welcome here. As for the bonus tracks the 7:39 version of Lovin' Is Really My Game is the track that attracted me to this re-release (track 12). I guess it was a 12" disco double A side release. The 2 versions Wake Up And Be Somebody (tracks 10 & 11) and the 7" single A & B sides of Lovin' Is Really My Game (tracks 13 & 14) are for completists, but still nessary here. I am glad for having all five of these bonus tracks. Listing to the whole CD release takes me back to when I was a 21 year old young man and life seemed simpler. I have to thank by friend, Steve for turning me onto the original Tabu/RCA vinyl release amny years ago and let me transfer it to cassette, and then later to CD-R. If you like this style of "old-school" funk, this CD is for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Still Stormin' 3 Oct 2013
By Alex Litvak - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Brainstorm’s debut album, “Stormin’” was released in early 1977 on newly formed Tabu Records label at the peak of the Disco craze. However, BRAINSTORM was in no way a Disco band. Bridging funk, R&B and some Disco, BRAINSTORM successfully merged all these styles to release an album of sophisticated music that would have fit on any format in 1977 and it did so with style. The most well known track off the album, “Lovin’ You Is Really My Game”, which became an across the board smash, perfectly caught the ambiance and fun of the hedonistic late 70’s night club culture. But take a closer listen and you will find that “Lovin’ You Is Really My Game” does not in any way represent the whole album. “Easy Thangs” is a funky R&B song, “Wake Up And Be Somebody” is a great funky Disco shuffler as well and became a club hit as well as a mid chart R&B Hit. “Waiting For Someone”, “Stormin’” and “We Know A Place” continue in the vein of spirited funk that you can dance to. Album closer “Hangin’ On” is a jazzy slice of instrumental funk and is a fitting way to end the album.

BRAINSTORM’s talents were not only limited to Dance and Funk. The members of BRAINSTORM were skilled musicians and BRAINSTORM was a self contained band. Check out the album’s lone ballad “This Must Be Heaven”. Band members trade vocals here and the song is an aching duet that should have been a Quiet Storm classic.

Thanks to Tabu Records for re-mastering this long out of print gem. This re-master has glorious sound and the packaging is simply gorgeous, the liner notes are fascinating and informative and there are Bonus tracks galore here. 5 of them to be exact and they are a treat. “Lovin’ You Is Really My Game” is available here in its rare 12” Disco Version, as well as in Single and Radio Mixes. “Wake Up And Be Somebody” is also available in two different mixes. The album’s beautiful original album cover art front and back is preserved as well. A must have for any Disco/R&B lover and collector.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stormin by Brainstorm/I love this CD. 16 May 2013
By W. Tucker - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This CD takes me back to my high school days when music was music and you were able to appreciate the talent of the band member's as well as the vocalist's. My favorite song is "This must be Heaven." I would advise any old head music lover's of the 70's and 80's to purchase this CD, which is guaranteed to bring back memories and I hope that it makes you feel as good as it made me feel.
